Re: Member status?

It’s basically meaningless, Vinny. I must have several dozen posts that comprise a O0 and only that. Some of the most “Executive” members, in my opinion, have very few posts because they just chime in about getting a Quicken-like piece of software to run in Linux (ZedThou), or figuring out the finer...

I’m not a monarchist, but sometimes I do envy how the Chinese get big projects done. Those maglev trains, for instance.

Re: Read the Permanent Portfoilio Bible?

I read, Fail-Safe, Best Laid Plans and Craig & MedTex’s book. I appreciate all three of them. I reread Best Laid Plans the most often, simply because I have the hardcover. The other two I have in Kindle form, so I tend to do more searching. When i was first getting started,~2010, my favorite materia...

Re: American Eagle or Canadian Maple Leaf?

Maple Leafs scratch like crazy. Even rubbing them with a cotton cloth will cause damage. If you drop one on the table it will ding. On the floor... Probably it bends in half. ^ This ^ I have one maple leaf and it's beautiful. But, krugerrands and american eagles have other metals that harden the co...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

(Trump) has all the qualities of a banana republic dictator. I cannot understand how this is not painfully obvious. There’s one important difference- banana republic dictators tend to steal from the country coffers. One could argue that the leader of a country like the U.S. doesn’t need to do that ...

I am soon to be a Level 4 investor.

Re: Estate Taxes

(pug) I have no idea how they think they are going to be able to know everyone's wealth, and there will be massive incentive to hide it
